Stampin' Up! Fabric- Quick and Easy Gift Idea

Stampin-up-fabric-pincushionsHappy 1st Day of Christmas!  Just wanted to share this super cute gift pin cushion made from Stampin' Up! Fabric that I CASEd from my demo friend, Kimberly, and gave to my loves ...daughters :)...for Christmas.  The one in the center is mine :) and the two in the little purse frames are perfect to match each of my daughters in color and style. I think it's awesome that all three of these fabric lines are from Holiday collections but are suitable for any time!

I'm looking for another special frame so that I can record a video so you can make one, too!  In the meantime, get some of this pretty, pretty fabric to be ready!

Stampin' Up! Fabric is wonderful for handmade from the heart gifts! These and more available in the ONLINE STORE!

Stampin' Up! Stocking Stuffer Idea- Designer Paper Notepads


Love making these little notepads out of my Stampin' Up! Designer Paper stash.  Just a few pages of paper from my printer cut at 3" x 10 1/2" and designer paper at 3" x 11", fold over, staple at the fold, embellish the front...Voila!

I saw some notepads like these when shopping and was going to pick some up for my girls and I thought, "whoa!  I can make these!"  And, of course, these are much cuter. :)

Here's another gift set of three that I made...


Go through your Stampin' Up! designer paper stash and give these handmade little gifts a try and let me know if you have questions! Have a holly, jolly, stampin' day!
